The 4th International Conference on members of the genus Flavobacterium will begin on Tuesday, October 27th, 2015 and end Thursday, October 29th. The meeting will take place in the city of Auburn, a small but thriving community in the state of Alabama and home to Auburn University.
This conference is a continuation of previous Flavobacterium meetings held at Shepherdstown, WV, USA (2007), Paris, France (2009), and Turku, Finland (2012). The main focus of this conference will be on fish pathogens, but there will be specific sessions dedicated to the biology, diversity, physiology, and genetics of non-pathogenic members of the genus as well as to fish pathogens of related genera such as Tenacibaculum and Chryseobacterium.
We look forward to an interesting conference with exciting presentations and exchange of ideas. We hope to see you soon in Auburn!
